Hey, a thing I actually know!I was watching Game of Thrones (Season 1), now out on DVD for rental.
While the story is set in a fictional world, the characters appear to be British and appear to speak British English.
The male characters in the series are not addressed as Sir, but as Ser. Can anyone shed any light on this word?
I could not find it in any on-line dictionary, except as an abbreviation for other words like "series" or "sermon."
It's pretty simple and not that interesting, "ser" is just the archaic version of "sir." Just language progression from the middle ages. "Ser" or "sir" is specifically used for knights.
